    Down with this sort of thing! Google should support net neutrality, not oppose it! The internet shouldn't discriminate data.

    It's very annoying how under the radar this all is. Google and Verizon plan to make their greed look good by calling their plan 'Open Internet'. As cliche as it is to acknowledge, "Knowledge is power". Be informed, and inform others.

    Thoughts on the article/net neutrality in general?

    You know it would be nice if the FCC actually still held some power. God forbid they stand up for the consumer or try to keep the internet you know open and equal. Big business and yes even Google can kiss my ass. I'm sick of everyone saying how awesome Google is. There just another big company.

    I think there is a movement towards neo fuedalism which involves all the public wealth being moved into private hands

    What the super rich want to do is privatise everything: the bridges, the roads, the schools, the hospitals, the internet etc that way they create a tollbooth economy where you will have to pay for everything you use, with interest.

    This will slow the movement of people, goods and information and keep people in a more serf like state

    Here is the economist Michael Hudson talking about the creation of a tolbooth economy through privatisation:

    and about the financial bailout:

    [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cCi06kkbEBg&NR=1"]YouTube- ECONOMIST MICHAEL HUDSON[/ame]

    At 4:55 of this third clip he says about as candidly as you will ever hear an influential person say that the government serves the bankers not the people:

    [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3pwAFohWBL4"]YouTube- Six Minutes with the Renegade Economist - Michael Hudson Special...[/ame]

    The internet offers an alternative to other media. The super rich have the other media completely stitched up so that they have for a while now been able to tell us whatever they like and make us believe it. They haven't yet gained such control over the internet.

    It is about knowledge. The internet is the new battle ground for control over peoples minds. It is our best way of seeing through the illusion and that is why they want to control it.
